Re: SGP/APCC meridian limits vs. Homing/limits
Hi Rodolphe,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
SGPro will take care of the flipping the mount at the appropriate time. The flip offset value in APCC is there to prevent the mount from hitting the meridian limit and performing a Parkoperation or stopping tracking to protect the mount.
So, if you are taking 10-minute images, you should add an extra 5 minutes and thus set the flip offset to 15 minutes in APCC. This moves the flip time forward 15 minutes in the mount and also in the flip time that is sent to SGPro. This will give the mount 5 minutes of buffer time before the meridian limit is reached which should be more than enough time for SGPro to move on to the next target.
